COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our boy, Miracle Mike, represents the good we hope to do with the Clown Shoes Minor Miracle Fund. A percentage of the profits from this juicy, sessionable IPA will be used to help real people (and maybe a puppy or two).

Perfect appearance. Hazy ,cloudy, coppery yellow. With a sticky, dense, lacy, frothy, white head. The aroma is quite nice with citrus, floral hop notes and earth. The taste is like a British IPA not a pop-culture American one, so mega points there. Its malty and bland with a bitter finish that sits light on the tongue. Itís not overly bitter. Itís a nice "real" ale with a hoppy character acting in the traditional preservative sense. Oh, and did I mention sessionable? Not-obnoxious at 5.5%. The work of a "Miracle" brewmasterís hands in todayís age of IBU rampant American "AIPAs".

The golden amber body was clear, with large head and below average lacing. The smell was pine and grapefruit from the American hops. The taste was very citric, with grapefruit, tangerine, and lime, and some pith like bitterness. The malt was evident in some candy like sweetness. The finish was mineral laced and dry. Mouthfeel was spot on for the style, balanced between sticky and slippery. Another quality offering from Clown Shoes.

obguthr (3435) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Overripe orange, leafy greens aroma. Cloudy amber, medium head. Oooohhh, unexpected slap of rosehips in the face right off the bat, intense. Nice juicy tangerine base. Finish is a bit non descript, but the mouthfeel is soft and nice. Wow, this is my kind of IPA. On par with Bellís Who Farted, a personal favorite.

Clown Shoes Miracle has a very thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head, a significantly hazy, somewhat bubbly, orange appearance, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong grapefruit and bread, and the flavor is of fruity, grapefruit hops, sweet bread, caramel, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and viscuous. Clown Shoes Miracle finishes dry and even crisp to some extent. This really is a session IPA. Overall, this is a most excellent beer, and strongly recommend you giving it a try! RJT

Clown Shoes always delivers some good IPAs. This beer also contributes to a good cause, so drink up! It is definitely very drinkable and it gives you a charitable purpose for trying it!

Very nice dark amber pour, slightly hazy, Aroma is grapefruit, citrus and pine. Bitter, but pleasantly so. Flavor is hoppy, grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Finish is slightly sweet orange peel. Considering how hoppy this is, it is surprisingly drinkable and refreshing.

22oz bomber pours deep gold body with a faint haze and it supports a fluffy tan head. The mild aroma offers up sweet malts and thin snippets of lemony to grapefruit like citrus notes. The taste begins with a pretty good dash of lemon mixed with grapefruit and getting firmly bitter toward midway. As this heads to the finish some sweet malts and earthy green tea join in the fun. Iím really liking this style IPA. It is a little earthy tea like (Jasmine tea maybe) and it is working great.

Bottle from Choice Beverages in McKinney. Pours a rich copper with a medium off white head. The aromas are citrus, bread. soap, flowers. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a light body and good carbonation. Cheers!

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. White micro head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Citrus and resin aromas. Well balanced with sweet caramel upfront turning to bitter resin in the lasting finish.
